MSU vs. UConn Free Pick (Apr 4)

Michigan St. Spartans (30-6) vs. Connecticut Huskies (31-4)

2009 NCAA Tournament Final Four Action
Saturday April 4, 6:07 PM ET
Detroit, MI Ford Field

Michigan State has won ATS in all 4 tournament games this year.  They have played great defense allowing only 61.3 points per contest.  However, they haven’t shot over 50% from the field in any of their 4 games.Raymar Morgan has been a different player since breaking his nose against Kansas in the Sweet 16 round.  He will probably be more confident now that he has a week of practice under his belt with the mask, unless he sheds it as he did in the second half against Louisville.  I expect Goran Suton to be a defensive focus of Connecticut’s big men.  He will have to work harder to produce like in previous rounds.

Connecticut has also won all 4 games ATS in this year’s tournament.  Their defense is only allowing 62 points a game while offensively they have shot over 50% from the field in 3 of the 4 games.  They have been dominating opponents on the boards by 17 rebounds a game.  The inside game of Thabeet, Robinson and Adrien should be able to exploit the Michigan State defense.  The guards will have a little trouble with the Spartans’ swarming defense but they will get the job done.

This matchup of potential Hall of Fame coaches is very highly anticipated.  I think Jim Calhoun will lead his team to victory 70-64.  Should be a tough, hard fought game and at end of the game FT’s will push Connecticut over the 4 point spread.
